Application of Road Engineering NSPM Action Programs on Sub-National Roads in Indonesia

Anastasia Caroline Sutandi, Agus Taufik Mulyono


In Indonesia, the norm, the standard, the guidelines, and the manual regarding road engineering for sub-national roads are known as road engineering NSPM. Application of a road engineering NSPM action program is crucial to increase roadworthiness and infrastructure resilience. Sub-national roads in Indonesia are roads at a province, regency, and city level. This research aims to find out the identification and evaluation of existing road conditions of sub-national roads in Indonesia. This research also aims to identify difficulties to increase road engineering NSPM application on sub-national roads. This research recommends action programs to attain roadworthiness of 75 percent of sub-national road length in Indonesia between the years 2015-2019. Sub-national roads in six provinces in Indonesia are the location of case studies. The provinces are Riau, particular region province of Yogyakarta, province of South Kalimantan, province of South Sulawesi, province of Bali, and the province of Maluku. Survey data show that province roads have fulfilled 66 percent of roadworthiness, regency roads have fulfilled 63 percent, and city road has fulfilled 81 percent. The difficulties in NSPM application are the limited support of the financial facility, and substandard application of human resource ability, dissemination of NSPM, evaluation of performance, road technical guidance, and observation on-site. The research methodology used is based on a physical existing road condition. Finally, thereĀ  is a recommendation of action programs that can be instituted, i.e. dissemination of regulations regarding guidelines of road function and status in Indonesia, regulation of Public Work Ministry of Republic of Indonesia no 03/PRT/M/2012, regular application of technical training and coaching about accurate location where road engineering NSPM will be applied to local government by central government, regular application of technical training and coaching about road infrastructure resilience, and application of road engineering NSPM on sub-national roads, including monitoring and evaluation both internally and externally.
